Still Proofing...

It turns out I'm an alternative, procrastinating, Daring Baker. (Will need to update my profile at the forum, someday.) Here's a tease of my tropical Danish Braid: I used coconut oil and coconut milk as replacements for butter and milk in the dough. The filling is mango and pineapple. Instead of an egg wash, I painted it with more coconut milk and sprinkled it with turbinado sugar. I'll let you all know how it turns out and post the complete recipe this evening after I recover from the birthday party we're going to today!

Sounds good to me. Waiting to see how it turned out. I used mango too. And left out the egg wash.

That looks lovely! These Daring Bakers are starting to look fun--maybe I will join up in the fall. (Too hot to think of baking tonight!)

Looking forward to hearing how the recipe turns out.
